Fearless Females~ Saint Paul's and the Marriage of Alice Allen

March 4 — Do you have marriage records for your grandparents or great-grandparents? Write a post about where they were married and when. Any family stories about the wedding day? Post a photo too if you have one.

Saint Paul's

My Great Grandmother Alice Mary Allen was 19 when she married Daniel Cocklin age 24  (spelling of his last name is incorrect on marriage record) on the 25th of December 1904 in Saint Paul's Church in the parish of Shadwell. Saint Paul's is known as the Church of the sea Captains and situated within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets located on the north bank of the Thames.
